Damon Salvatore Has a Girlfriend!

at . Comments

It's not Rose. And, sorry Delena lovers, it won't be Elena. But Damon Salvatore is getting a new girlfriend on The Vampire Diaries.

None other than Ian Somerhalder himself confirmed the spoiler this week, Tweeting the following photo of himself, Matthew Davis and guest star Dawn Olivieri, who will play reporter Andie Star. Take note of the caption:

Damon Girlfriend

Confirming that Damon will feast on this character the same way he drank from Caroline last season, Somerhalder told Zap2It:

"Damon's kind of proud of [the name]. There's a line where Alaric comes to the Salvatore house, and Andie's sort of leaving after the walk of shame, and she's obviously got a little scarf around her neck because Damon's been munching on her. Alaric is sort of blown away, and Damon goes, 'Andie Star, Action News.'"

Somerhalder refers to Andie as Damon's "beard" because the vampire will compel the journalist to act as his girlfriend in order to help him fit in around town.

But just because the relationship is phony doesn't mean Damon won't open up to Andie.

"It's this girl and Damon taking a bubble bath together, drinking wine by candlelight," Somerhalder teases of an upcoming scene. "Damon has this sort of, not cathartic breakdown, but he says to her the way he's feeling. It's kind of tragic that the only way he can express himself to anyone is if he puts them under his compulsion, where they're actually his sort of droids, if you will."

We know of a few TV Fanatic readers that wouldn't mind being Damon's droids, right, ladies?

Vampire Diaries Quotes

You want a love that consumes you. You want passion and adventure, and even a little danger... I want you to get everything you're looking for. But for right now, I want you to forget that this happened. Can't have people knowing I'm in town yet. Goodnight, Elena.


Dear Elena, yes you heard that correctly. Hell has frozen over. I'm writing it all down. Granted, I'm half a bottle in thanks to my 1950 Chateau Cheval Blanc, a bottle I waited 65 years to open. I used to spend nights sitting in my wine cellar convincing myself I could hear it age, tannins growing, fermenting, but appreciating its beauty didn't make time go by any faster. The bottle just laid there on its shelf, torturing me while I waited for Katherine and time stood still. Eventually I convinced myself that no sip of that wine could ever taste as good as I dreamt it would. And that is the story of why I drink bourbon. I don't know who I am without you, but I know that as long as I'm with you, time will stand still. So who is Damon Salvatore without Elena Gilbert? A selfish friend, a jealous brother, a horrible son? Or maybe with a little luck, I'll do right by you. Because you may be a thousand miles away or a hundred years away, but you're still here with me and my heart is right there in that coffin with you. Until you come back to me.
